Al Franken and Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin said, "There's a bunch of old white guys trying to silence me, and I'm just here to say that's wrong."

Is she talking about Al Franken?

Sen. Al Franken has reversed himself and decided "it would be best" for Kathy Griffin not to attend an event that the Minnesota senator had scheduled with the comedian for July.

The Democratic senator had said on Wednesday that he would still hold an event with Griffin on July 7 in California, even after publicly distancing himself from an image showing Griffin with a faux beheaded President Donald Trump.

But Franken said on Thursday evening that he'd changed his mind regarding the event promoting his new book, "Giant of the Senate."

"I believe what Kathy Griffin did was inappropriate and not something that should be anywhere in our national discourse. I consider her a friend and I'm glad she realized she crossed the line and apologized," Franken said.
Poor Al, that old white guy.

He didn't want to do it, but he realized that he would suffer politically if Griffin appeared with him.
